Dragon Quest VIII Review: Classic RPG, Inturrupted


Dragon Quest is a premier Japanese RPG series that has slightly less name recognition outside of that country. Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King is widely considered one of the better entries in the series, and that reputation is well earned as anyone who’s played it on another platform can attest. On iOS…(Read the full article)

Kingdom Rush Origins Review: Solid, Dependable Tower Defense


The Kingdom Rush series is, hands down, my favorite tower defense series on iOS. The devs really understand what makes a TD game work, and they’ve produced two excellent examples of the genre. Now, they’ve made a third in the series, Kingdom Rush Origins, which sticks with the winning formula to deliver another solid TD…(Read the full article)

Five Nights at Freddy’s 2 Review: Improved in Every Way


If you had a business with a murder problem, you’d probably just close up shop and deal with the lawsuits brought by the families of the deceased. Not so the owners of Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, who dealt with their murderous animatronic problem by moving to a new location and installing new security measures. Thus is…(Read the full article)

Sailor’s Dream Review: Hoist Anchor and Sail Away


Simogo is one of the more interesting mobile developers out there. The way they play with the line between game and narrative, and the way they incorporate interactive elements to help pull the player into the story, is unique in the App Store. Their latest, The Sailor’s Dream, is another foray into interactive storytelling that…(Read the full article)

Five Nights at Freddy’s Review: Simple But Effective


There’s something just plain creepy about animatronic characters. Five Nights at Freddy’s, the surprise hit indie horror game, takes full advantage of that. It’s a simple game, but it can also be effective. The premise, if you haven’t heard, is this: You are the midnight watchman at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, a children’s pizza party restaurant…(Read the full article)

Banner Saga Review: This RPG is a Story-Driven Success


One of the more frustrating articles I’ve read in recent months was this one discussing the issues Apple and developer Stoic had over pricing for The Banner Saga, the turn-based RPG that hit iTunes recently. It was frustrating because the Banner Saga is such a good game, a real fine example of its genre, and…(Read the full article)

Goat Simulator Review: The Dumbest Game You Won’t Regret Playing


So, I have been tasked with writing a  review of Goat Simulator. I will endeavor to do my best, but be warned: this is not a typical game review. Which is fitting, since this isn’t a typical game. Goat Simulator is an unapologetically pointless game that one can only appreciate by…(Read More)

Goblin Sword Review: Retro Platforming Goodness


Retro gaming is big in the App Store. So many 8-bit and 16-bit retro games are out there that it’s not really a special idea anymore. But when a game isn’t just retro but nostalgic, it’s a real treat. Goblin Sword is such a game, an unrepentant 16-bit retro platformer that delivers a great experience.

Valiant Hearts (iOS) Review: A Puzzle Adventure Game With History and Heart


Big games are … well, big. But sometimes, it’s the small studios who take chances on unlikely ideas and make awesome games with them. One such game is Valiant Hearts: The Great War, recently released to iOS. This blend of story, style, and substance is worth playing. Go into Valiant Hearts with the intent of…(Read the full article)

Bioshock [iOS] Review: A Capable Port of a Great Game


Last year, 2K/2K China delivered iOS gamers the excellent XCOM: Enemy Unknown port. They’re back this year with another big console port, this time the sci-fi FPS thriller Bioshock. Like their previous effort, Bioshock is generally a strong and impressive port; unlike XCOM, however, Bioshock’s port is not without hiccups.
